    No... they are not necessarily better players in all respects, but they make a competitive team because there is a district distribution on roles in the roster and abilities that supplement each other ...

    It is widely known that Kemba and Butler are very good friends, what unites them is obviously their passion for the game and the mutual respect they have for each other... Under the circumstances, I would doubt that Butler would stay at MIN and even more so to give Kemba a call as to join him...

    I doubt that Butler would stay either, but if he won't stay here, he sure as hell would not want to stay in Wisconsin? Also, be careful what you are pining for, as JB would surely burn you too. Whatever you give up for him it will be for a 1 year rental. Dude is Hollywood bro, that's why he gave us such a short list of teams that he wants to go to. NY, Brooklyn, LA, and MIA are the places he listed. Far from Wisconsin hey.

    IMO, if a team trades for Butler now and the team makes the finals, then he stays... Players like him, want to compete at the highest possible level, he doesn't have the time to wait for a team that is building their roster up...

    He WONT make the finals with the Bucks especially since it will take Middleton and more to get him.

    Why not? Bucks are competitive enough already and Butler will improve the team further than Middleton by taking his place in the roster...

    The way I see it, having Butler in the Bucks roster at SF at the opposite side of Giannis playing PF, will space the floor much more for both, because Butler (like Giannis) does much of the playmaking himself instead of relying on the guards. I look at Butler as perfect to have in a roster that includes Giannis... Then a PG like Kemba and it maybe the perfect chemistry a team can have...

    No problem there either... we've hit gold in signing Wood and added Ilyasova and Brook Lopez too with a coach that doesn't rely on bigs to be of the "traditional" (physical) kind, but rather of the "moving like a wing" kind... Did you see the game in MIL?

    Most probably we'll move Henson soon and not have him replaced with a "big", but rather with another wing... We are so crowded with bigs now, that we waived Zeller yesterday!

    I like the Bucks team and Gio is probably my favorite player to watch.... that said I also work in the mental health field and can get you meds for that delusional disorder.... Bucks not in the same class as the Celts... not real close.

    If Bucks will get a deal for Butler with you, they win the East this season, if they add Kemba too by midseason, they can beat GSW in the finals... all feasible.
    Oh you poor young man.

    You'd get swept by the Celtics/Raptors before you got anywhere near the Warriors, bud.

    I get that having Butler would make your team better, but he isn't the piece that puts you over the top. He and GA overlap skillset wise, and have similar weaknesses to boot. That being said, you take your shots where you can.

    You are also forgetting the Celtics, who are just far better, and even the Raps with a healthy KL are better, than a GA-Butler duo imo.

    If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.
